Collette M. Moreno died at University Hospital in Columbia from her injuries. She was a passenger in a car that was trying to pass a second car when it collided with an oncoming car.

Moreno was wearing a seat belt.

The crash was reported at 2:52 p.m. Friday at Missouri Highway 5 and Prairie Valley Road in Morgan County.

Ashley M. Theobald, 26, of Kansas City, was driving a 2003 Chevy Malibu southbound when she attempted to pass another vehicle, according to a Missouri Highway Patrol report.

This occurred as Melvin E. Garber, 25, of Versailles, MO, was cresting a hill in his 1999 Dodge Ram. As the cars headed toward each other, both drivers swerved to avoid a collision.

The Dodge struck the passenger side of the Malibu, which then traveled off the left side of the road and crashed. The Ram traveled on the right side of the road and crashed.

Theobald was also wearing a seat belt and suffered minor injuries. She was treated at University Hospital also.

Garber was also wearing a seat belt and did not suffer serious injuries.

The investigation is continuing.

According to a wedding website, Moreno was to get married in July. Theobald had excitedly posted on Facebook Friday morning about getting off work early to start the bachelorette weekend.

Moreno's mother and much of her family are in California. Friends said she is survived by a 5-year-old son who is now struggling to understand why his Mommy isn't coming home.

A website has been set up to help raise funds to pay for Moreno's funeral and for her family's travel costs to come to Missouri. Click here for more information.
